Abstract

Parliaments legislate, oversight government and have a key role in the discussion and approval of National Budgets, playing a key role in three key aspects of the enabling environment to achieve food security and nutrition for all: legal frameworks, accountability and investment.

Parliamentarians are becoming more and more engaged in FSN evidence based policy dialogue, and actively articulating networks and partnerships at national and international level to contribute to achieve SDG2. 

The experiences of the Parliamentary Front against Hunger, from Latin America and the Caribbean, the Pan-African Parliamentary Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, establishing networks of parliamentarians, collaborating with non-government and development partners to promote legislative initiatives cover many different issues relevant to the CFS work, like school food and social protection, family farming or food security and nutrition governance.

The side event will contribute to share valuable lessons learned between Parliamentarians and with CFS stakeholders on parliamentarian initiatives to strengthen FSN policy coherence, governance and resource allocation to end hunger and malnutrition by 2030.  Secondly, the side event will facilitate a better understanding of the opportunities to enlarge collaboration of CFS stakeholder with parliamentarians to achieve SDG2 and the progressive realization of the right to adequate food.
